Tell that to his wife and kids.<quoted text>Yes, the surrender argument. But losing a father isn't as great a loss as losing a mother, in terms of demographics..........
The bottom line is that, like so many other things in life, it should not be up to you to choose. It's up to the people involved, people making well reasoned choices, based on their abilities, goals and dreams.
Would I make that choice? No Way. Unless there was no other way. I would not have the physical ability to do it, but I know men and women who do.
And you cannot choose for THEM.
